“Flashback Friday”. This is the very first band picture of us. Taken by Peter Svendsen outside Dead Rat Studio early 2011. At that time Broadway Killers was just a side project started by three friends that shared the same passion for the same kind of music. Four years later we have released three EPs, one album and played countless concerts in various countries with bands like Beatsteaks, Anti Flag and Bad Religion. We never ever expected this to happen when this picture was taken a spring day in May.
Today we hit the road once again to do what we love the most – playing live. We’re not a studio band, we’re a live band. In no way are we the biggest or most important band in the world and we will never be, however, that’s not why we started. We started Broadway Killers to play the music WE love. Being able to do that, get the experiences we get through our music and the fact that people sstill show up, buy or in some way enjoy what we do is enough. That’s pretty awesome. You should try it.
Soon I’ll meet up with the guys, jump in the three-person-front-seat-van, put on our tour-CDs and have the f*cking best time of my life. Again.
See you all out there!

2014. An unbelievable year for our little group. First of all we joined our heroes, Bad Religion, on tour throughout Europe. Secondly, we released our debut album. And finally, we went on tour in the Gibson Tour Bus with Three Chord Society. I could stop right here and these four lines would describe what some bands fight for for a lifetime. We experienced it all in half a year… However, we move on. We have new dreams and ambitions.
2015. It has already begun and will kick start for real next Friday when we play our first concert this year in Copenhagen at UnderWerket. Furthermore, we have started writing songs for an EP that we will be recorded late summer/early autumn. We don’t know about the musical direction, but all have an idea about what we would like to do. How we would like to sound.
It’s been a while since you have heard from us, but we are still alive. Broadway Killers exists because of our friendship and we need it in our lives. One way or an other.
See you soon out there

It’s the first time we will join forces on tour with our friends in Three Chord Society. However, we have known the guys for years. I guess it’s eight years ago, since I met the band for the first time. They have always been great guys, fun to be around and only gotten better and better as a band. I think their song-writing-holidays in Denmark paid off;) Songs like “Swan Song”, “I Am An Ocean”, Into The Wild” and “On The Brink” are just some of their great tunes.
The band has just had a two years break, but we are thrilled to have them on board. Next month we will hit the road on our co-headliner tour. Can’t wait to get the engine going and see them and you out there.

We are thrilled. We are excited. We are proud. Our album is out now! It’s been a long time, we worked hard, but everything has fallen into place and though we have made tough decisions, we made the right decisions. Some of you – especially all the believers from Sellaband, who supported us and made this record possible – have waited a long time. We really, truly hope you like the result. More than any other thing is this your record.
On the record we have worked with our long time friend, Jacob Bredahl, who has made all our recordings and enjoyed time in his Dead Rat Studio. Best guy EVER. We have great friends featured on the album. Ben from Three Chord Society, Matze from Heisskalt are joining us. Furthermore, Justin Sane from Anti-Flag made his appearance on “Blessings And Sins”.
It’s an understatement to say that we are grateful.
Love, Emil, Anders and Jakob

About the song I can say that “In Front of You” is a love song in reverse. Inspired by bands like The Gaslight Anthem and Social Distortion I wrote this song a year after I broke up with my ex-girlfriend. It was a tough break, because she is an amazing person and a huge inspiration. I guess this is kind of a tribute to her. I know she will make it everywhere she goes – she already has. I wanted to tell her that the world’s in front of her… I guess she already knows.
All the best till then
